one-third of the national average. 17 large and small airports. waterways. There are 11 major coastal and inland ports. the efficiency of rail and road transportation between cities has not changed much recently. with profits equaling some 75% of the total profit for the entire Shanghai transport industry in 2005. Railway transport accounts for about 50% of intercity passengers in Shanghai and about 5% of cargo transport. of which freeway mileage constitutes 560 kilometers. the service and functioning of regional transport have greatly advanced. and air transportation have improved a lot in efficiency. Thus. and the share of freight movement is also more than 10% of the total. As a result. The Shanghai railway plays an important role in the national railway networks. a negligible increase in the last 15 years. especially the ocean. 2. In contrast. As an international hub airport. In 2005 major ports in the GYDR handled over one-third of the foreign trade cargo for China. But its capacity is limited and railway transport maintained a deficit from 1997 to 2005. Of these the Shanghai and Ningbo ports handled 70% of the foreign cargo in the GYDR area. especially for passenger transport. And the utilization rate of line section capacity approached 100%.66 times that of 1990.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study Transport modernization and integration is an important component of economic integration in the Yangtze Delta Region and a precondition of realizing economic integration. The total highway mileage in Shanghai reached 8. 2 .16 km. Intercity passengers in Yangtze delta region account for 20% of the nation’s total.8% of China’s average. The highway mileage per ten thousand people in this area is only 20. The operated mileage in Shanghai has only changed from 259 km in 1990 to 269 km in 2005. It represents the backbone of intercity transport for Shanghai. Pudong airport will be extended to reach a capacity of 80 million passengers while Hongqiao will increase its capacity to 30 million by 2010. Railways are better suited to passenger and longer distance freight transport than roads. the Yangtze Delta Region is one of the most important logistics centers in China. Railway mileage per 10. Waterway transport enterprises have grown to be the economic power of the Shanghai transport sector. Since the 1990s. Shanghai Pudong and Shanghai Hongqiao airports account for 70% of air passengers and 86% of the air freight in this region. It is the construction of passenger and freight transport systems that has made the high-speed development of the region possible. especially freeway systems. Constrained by transport capacity and vehicle efficiency.000 persons was only 0. the road network length density of the greater Yangtze Delta Region (GYDR) is now higher than that of the other areas in China by area. it does not match the economic scale and size of the population. hundreds of highway routes and 10 main railways in this region. However.110 kilometers in 2005.

port-rail. up 84% over that of 2000.8%. the GYDR must change its development path if it wants to realize the goal of sustainable development. and with the continued development of the manufacturing industry in GYDR. The extensive construction of urban roads did lessen traffic congestion for short periods immediately after construction. Shanghai can only connect with the other parts of mainland China through the Shanghai-Nanjing corridor in the northwest and Shanghai-Hangzhou corridor in the southwest. But the fast growth of motorization and the car industry promotion policy require large amounts of road space. a prominent contradiction of land resources. especially Shanghai. According to statistics. Shanghai’s motorization is also increasing rapidly. By the end of 2005.227 kilometers. Faced with a complicated and volatile situation. city planners have followed a strategy to constrain car use. Over the last ten years. about 50% were seriously congested during rush hour.000 to 2.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study Shanghai is a key international shipping and aviation center. Of 22 arterial road crossings under investigation. Shanghai urban transport Regarding urban transport in Shanghai. with the number of motorized vehicles increasing from 466. Forty-one percent of the investment was for metro construction. It was recognized that a metro system may be the solution. Two enormous bridges are under construction as a new gateway to the north via Nantong and to the south via Ningbo.9% of its GDP annually on transportation infrastructure. At present. the total mileage of city roads in Shanghai had reached 12. of which 7.200 kilometers of carriageway length are classified as express and arterial roads. The huge investments in transportation are only possible with the active role of the Shanghai government and the involvement of the private sector. the Yangtze Delta Region1.000 in 9 years. consistent with the policy of encouraging public transport in the city center and adopting motorization in suburban areas. airport-regional public transport systems. because of the long time delays in infrastructure construction and the city center’s high population density. transportation congestion and resource constraints. an annual growth rate of 20. More integrated regional transport systems should be encouraged.217. during rush hour about 42% of arterial roads in the center of the western Shanghai area were congested. Expansion of the existing highways is unlikely to meet the huge demand for sustainable mobility due to high traffic concentrations on several corridors that pass through densely populated areas. is in a key period of development. Shanghai invested an average of 2. the rise of production prices and enterprise cost increases resulting from an appreciation in the RMB. such as the parking policy and license plate auction system. Because of its geographical location. a large demand for freight and passenger movement will be created. such as sea-inland waterways. and large scale metro construction is now 3 .

from 1995 to 2004 the proportion of the motorized trips in Shanghai increased from 28% to 40%.48 million passengers daily. According to the Third Transport Survey Report of Shanghai (2004).000 taxies registered carry 2. Motorized travel is increasing even more dramatically. As a result. and non-motorized-vehicles dropped from 42% to 28%. the average travel distance extended from 4.5 kilometers/trip to 6. Transport demand within Shanghai’s city center is increasing.96 million passengers every day. accounting for 54% of total trips. transport development is closely connected with other aspects of sustainable urban development. with annual increases of nearly 37%. A long-term government commitment is also needed to control the increasing volume of car traffic. One of the distinguishing characteristic of urban transport in Shanghai is that pedestrian and bicycle traffic is quite high. The gap between traffic demand and supply is widening. thanks to the contribution of land-use control with a high density and high mixture. The local buses serve 7. for example fatal traffic accidents in suburb areas accounted for more than 85% of the total number in Shanghai in 2004. private motorized vehicles from 7% to 15%. The total passengers per day rose to 1. energy consumption and social justice. traffic safety.63 million in 2005.000 seats and 948 bus/trolley lines with a total length of 22. especially line #1. the metro is always seriously crowded.000 buses with 1. Traffic safety measures have been gradually strengthened. Public transport is now a priority in urban transport policy. the total number of daily trips for resident was about 41 million. There are 5 metro lines in Shanghai with 68 stations and a total operating length of 147. From 1980 to 2000.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study ongoing. It is because of non-motorized travel that road congestion is still acceptable to society. There are 18. The number of passengers serviced by the Shanghai metro system increased sharply from 2000 to 2005.9 km in 2005. For example. With the expansion of the city and the remarkable growth in urban activity space. including environmental protection. Traffic safety in the suburbs is still very serious. The 45. the number of traffic accidents increased progressively by 275%. of which the proportion of public transport rose from 20% to 24%. the biggest increase is in trips outside of the central city.180. and the direct pecuniary losses due to road traffic accidents in Shanghai followed a significant downward trend in recent years. and the proportion of motorized travel has increased. And the low paid employees are still able to get to work at an acceptable time and monetary cost. and also the large-scale infrastructure still available for non motorized travel in Shanghai. the growth rate of motorized trips is far ahead of that of the personal trips.000 km in Shanghai. At the same time. and the number of deaths and injuries.9 kilometers/trip between 1995 and 2004. Shanghai has witnessed substantial development in both transport supply and operational efficiency. 4 .

2 With residential areas developing along the main transport axis. some low-income families are being squeezed out by higher earning newcomers. The overall cost of transportation is increasing rapidly in general.6% in 2006. As a result. 20 million tonnes more than in 2000. the Shanghai government has instigated many transport demand management policies. such as the intercity express rail. but also by its impact on economic vitality and social justice. metro system and freight rail link to the container port. to areas with poorer transportation. parking charging policy and motorcycle limitation policy have so far been most successful. low-income families will spend more time travelling. Data show that CO2 emissions were 138 million tonnes in 2002. As a result. CO2 emissions reached 150 million tonnes in 2004. the annual daily average of inhalable particulates. Of these the public transport privilege policies. There is a need to develop a regional planning authority that would responsible for the implementation of plan. But success will not be measured just by its scale.086mg/m3.000 km metro construction plan is very ambitious. Key policy issues on sustainable mobility for Shanghai To solve the above problems. construction will further divide whole society. due to the limited land area and geographical setting of Shanghai. This shows the need to cut the cost of urban transport.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study In 2006. This rose to 15. the low-income segment rides the metro much less frequently that the other income groups. But the main efforts will be put on mass-capacity transport modes. highway construction is usually considered the simplest solution to implement to address transportation needs.One report has estimated that 86% of CO2 and 81% of NOx are from urban vehicle emissions in Shanghai. In 2000 only 3% of the family budget was spend on transportation and communication. A two-way metro ticket costs a minimum of 17. 5 . or provide the subsidy directly to the low-income consumer. Greater Yangtze Delta Region comprehensive transport plan Due to the difficult nature of province-wide coordination between different government transport authorities.7% of a low-wage worker’s daily income. With faster growth. However. it is proving very difficult for Shanghai to provide enough traffic lanes to match the demand from surrounding provinces for freight and passenger transport. The 1. Continue to strengthen key transport infrastructure construction Shanghai will continue to strengthen the construction of key transport infrastructure. Some important policies are analyzed below. 0. The construction of the metro is key to establishing a sustainable transport system in Shanghai. SO2 and NO2 in urban areas was 0. If we cannot reduce the cost.055mg/m3 respectively. the license plate auctioning policy.051mg/m3 and 0. Even with great effort to encourage public transport through large-scale metro construction. a comprehensive transport plan should be prepared to integrate various transport modes over the whole GYDR.

3 The question is whether public transport can provide the same mobility service as a bicycle without an extra financial burden on the government? Or should people be forced to use a car even for short distance travel?4 How can bicycle riders keep their share of the road? Faced with these questions. the license plate auction and parking policy. especially in suburban areas. the ability to coordinate the various stakeholders within Shanghai. Protect space for slow transport The bicycle is still the most sustainable mode of urban transport. Control of motorized vehicle Controlling the number of motorized vehicle has been a successful practice in Shanghai from the 1990s. The construction of the multi-modal transport system will face the challenge of institutional fragmentation. many services and job opportunities were available in Shanghai within bicycle range. such as the flexible working hours schedule. this unique public policy is under great pressure from the car industry lobby.. In the past. GYDR and the central government is critical to success. keeping a balanced dynamic between road supply and increasing vehicle demand by. investments in traffic control equipment and stronger enforcement) has greatly improved the local government’s ability to manage traffic and the physical quality of traffic infrastructure. As a result. this transfer is not obvious due to limited services and geographic coverage. have not been fully explored yet.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study Coordinating between urban land use and transport It has been proven that land-use density and mixture are very important factors that impact on people’s travel mode choice. In addition. it is now very important to keep the characteristics of the pedestrian and bicycle transport modes in the city. A new taxation system should also be introduced to encourage people to buy smaller cars for both environmental and road/parking space concerns. But there is an incentive to sell as much land as possible to generate fiscal revenues. The soft traffic management measures. the municipal government has anticipated a transfer of the long distance bicycle passenger to motorized public transport. so that suburban development should be encouraged along the public transport corridors. tide traffic lanes5 etc. the license plate auction policy only delays motorization. In the context of the rapid expansion of urban space. although it is hard to consider it a successful operation on the whole. generally speaking. Traffic management The operation of “unblocking the road” (to speed-up the car traffic with wider roads. is working well to control unplanned and low-density development in Shanghai. Information technology has the potential to greatly improve the efficiency of existing transport infrastructure and make information on transport “more accessible and more transparent” for passenger and freight movement. in fact. However. 6 . Building multi-mode urban transport system based on public transport priority The municipal government has tried to promote the construction of transportation hubs to more effectively link all transport modes. The intention is to fully leverage the advantages of various transport modes and build up a multi-modal urban transport system. The urban planning control system. for example. However.

This restriction was extended to the surface roads within the inner-ring road on 1 October 2006. the European I emission standards for light vehicles was implemented. The use of low-olefin unleaded petrol was promoted for motorized vehicles in March 2000 ahead of national implementation. According to new regulations implemented in the city center since 15 February 2006. two years ahead of schedule.e. the European II emission standard for motorized vehicles was implemented in the city. unleaded gasoline for motor vehicles was promoted in Shanghai. On 1 July 1999.. high-polluting vehicles (i.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study Vehicle emission control On 1 October 1997.

The opening of new train services. .Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study 3. from 30% in 2000 to 85% in 2004. reaching 23%.5 Conclusions Comment from stakeholder dialogue: In Shanghai it was pointed out that the highway authority is often in conflict with the planning authority.5 Air cargo transport As many as 900 airplanes took off from and land at Shanghai’s airports each day in 2005 (of which 488 were in Pudong Airport and 412 in Hongqiao Airport). has expanded the economic influence of Shanghai to the hinterland area. It was also pointed out that municipal developments are limited to the outer ring road. Beyond that. Its total port handling capacity is increasing rapidly.4. reaching 26%. the development of Shanghai’s ports and inland waterways is in full swing.211 tons of cargo and mail were transported out of Shanghai airports through international flights.5: Shanghai airports cargo transport growth Source: the 11th five-year-plan of Shanghai Air Transport In 2002 as many as 211. regular freight trains and double-deck container trains. such as post parcel transport. This is not conducive to public transport that requires relatively dense populations to make it efficient and accessible to many people. 44 Shanghai’s transport network infrastructure has been greatly improved in recent years. the combination of construction of intercity freeways and railways in the YRD as well as the increases in train speeds six-fold.958 tons of air cargo and mail were transported out of Shanghai. As many as 402. With the eastern transfer of flights from Hongqiao to Pudong. the cargo and mail handling proportion of Pudong International Airport climbed year after year.

and the container sea-railway combined transport capacity has developed slowly. • The infrastructures and hubs such as the Shanghai airport runways. their capacity cannot meet personal travel requirements occurring in peak times such as festivals and holidays. • The construction of the comprehensive connecting ground transport facilities for the airports still need to accelerate. their cargo transport facilities cannot meet the new cargo transport demand. 45 . the construction of terminal buildings and cargo terminals have not been delivered to the expected standards. The number of deep-water berths cannot meet the developing tendency of large and specialized ships. Shanghai’s inland river-ways are constructed at a slow speed. • Shanghai has only two external railways: Shanghai-Nanjing and Shanghai-Hangzhou railways. • • • Shanghai’s container wharfs continue to be operated under an excessively heavy load. and the port distribution system is not perfect. especially the distribution system of the Yangshan deepwater port area which needs to be improved. it still has the following problems: • The present highways are not synthetically related to Shanghai’s urban development and are not suitable for the town system as determined by the new round master plan of Shanghai. While the comprehensive transport system of Shanghai has made great strides.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study Shanghai’s air transport capacity is also growing swiftly and its airports have joined the list of the world’s busiest airports.

Shanghai urban transport This chapter focuses on the transport systems in Shanghai’s city center (mainly within the outer-ring) with a detailed analysis of its demand and supply.1: Growth rate of total trips by residents and motorized vehicles 46 . The features of both resident travel and motorized vehicle travel prove that the increasing trend of transport demand is irresistible. including the travel characteristics of both residents and motorized vehicles. transport demand within central city in Shanghai has been increasing dramatically. the situation of Shanghai's traffic demand. is described.1 Features of travel demand According to the Third Transport Survey Report of Shanghai (2004).1.

Finally. including the city’s road system. public transport system and non-motorized transport system are analyzed. The total number of daily trips by residents and number of daily trips made using motorized vehicles rose 45% and 220% respectively from 1995 to 2005.

According to the Third Transport Survey Report of Shanghai (2004). traffic accidents and so on.2.45 million trips daily.4 times. is always under the threat to be replaced by motorized vehicles. The share of non-motorized trips is as high as 57. In other cities where extensive suburbs have dominated city growth. The daily trips by two-wheelers reached 12. there is an imbalance between transport demand and supply that causes many adverse problems. With the extension of the city. transport demand within the central city in Shanghai has been increasing. and the basic fare is 3 Yuan within a distance of 6 km. the policies for public transport privilege. the total number of registered two-wheelers is 10.3 Non-motorized transportation system Another characteristic of urban transport in Shanghai is walking and cycling.

The license tag auction has also brought unexpected influences. achieving for example a lower motorization rate than Beijing. construction and management of its parking facilities with a transport areas differentiation policy. Shanghai carries out the “public transport first” policy30 where land use for public transport shall be ensured first. Shanghai will realize the full coverage of 500-meter service radius of public transport stops in the central city and suburban towns. Shanghai will invest about 110 billion Yuan in pushing forward this action plan. the public transport trips will account for more than 60% of the motorized vehicle passenger trip. The auctioning system is different from that of Singapore. has been formally put into operation. More bus services will be provided in suburban areas. in order to control the fast growth of motorized vehicles in Shanghai and reduce the pressure on urban traffic. by 2010.3. which was compiled as required by the strategic objective of “public transport first”.654 license tags were granted. According to this plan.3. 68.1 Public transport priority policy According to the public interest priority and the highest efficiency principle. the other areas in central area provide a higher number of parking spaces to allow more vehicles to enter this area. Shanghai has changed this into public auction without a lowest price for the license tag limit. 4.3 Parking charging policy Shanghai guides the planning.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study 4. By that time. The auction policy of license tags has restrained the increase in car ownership in Shanghai. 4. Since 2000. The three-year Action Plan of Developing Public Transport Priority from 2007 to 2009 of Shanghai. The license is valid for life once it is purchased and can be transferred to other people. public transport spending shall be invested first.3. Shanghai should continuously increase the public transport modal share. The 58 . This policy has alleviated the contradiction between road supply and traffic demand to a certain degree. such as a decrease in demand for cheaper vehicles. and for more than 33% of the total trips. The aim of the transport model is “taking the public transport as the main mode and private car as the assistant mode”.31 The specific measures are that the central business district provide few parking spaces and charge a higher price to control vehicles from entering this area. and the transfer convenience of public transport shall also be ensured.2 The license plate auctioning policy Since 1994. the license tags of private cars in Shanghai have been auctioned by tender with a reserved price. In 2006. and the average successful bidding price was as high as RMB 46.435. and the public transport travel between any two points in the central city will be completed within one hour. and lots of automobilists licensing their cars in adjacent cities and using them in Shanghai. public transport shall be operated efficiently.

Shanghai has drafted and implemented policies to gradually reduce motorcycles. strictly controlling the on-street parking through the administrative and economic measures.3. the punishment for cyclists violating traffic regulations is more serious. The specific measures are that motorcycles are forbidden to travel through the roads of the central city. However. and special bus parking.4 Motorcycle limitation policy As motorcycles can travel more flexibly and faster. etc.3. The suburban area provides sufficient parking places in connection with town construction to match a policy of less control on using cars. the policy of “the discarded motorcycles shall not be renewed” is implemented. the relevant policies of “switching the motorcycle plates to car plates” have been prepared and implemented. and has planned preferentially charged public parking lots by the transport hubs near the outer ring to encourage car passengers to switch to public transport before they enter the urban center. lower the operational efficiency of urban transport and cause many problems to the environment. ensuring that the residential car shall be parked according to the principle of “one parking space for one car”. workplace parking. The consideration has been taken to implement various policies according to the different characteristics of parking types. the roads and areas where motorcycles are forbidden will be expanded gradually.1: Parking charge standards 4. giving priority to construction of bus depots.

Therefore. the influence of motorcycles on traffic order is reduced. a lot of speeding motorcycles can disturb the normal transport order. the charging standards are raised. and strengthened the oversight of motorcycles. 59 .Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study peripheral area focuses on solving the parking conflicts in residential communities. carried out regional controls on the use of motorcycles. street parking.

Besides air pollution. and the service quality of public transport has been considerably enhanced. There are also many problems facing urban transport in Shanghai. especially its public transport. which we never thought possible before. spatial segregation and so on. people have recognized the importance of the bicycle system in city center from both efficiency and environment concerns. After long a period where the widespread use of bikes was controlled due to the perception that they caused the low efficiency of traffic circulation. new higher grade vehicles have been introduced. air pollution.32 Comment from stakeholder dialogue: Many of the issues related to land use and transport integration in Shanghai are similar to the rest of China. but congestion is still serious after short periods of relief. There is a feeling that if this can be solved in Shanghai.4 Conclusions The urban transport system of Shanghai. bus priority”. such as traffic congestion. The services of the taxi industry have been standardized and its management strengthened. Overall the pollution resulting from car emissions in the center city is becoming more and more serious although some adjustment of energy source structure has been implemented. traffic accidents. there is complex pollution of petrol and soot. the Shanghai public transportation system has been greatly upgraded with large-scale metro construction. The heavy investment and quick-pace of construction of the urban transport infrastructure has created a road network with sufficient capacity. Traffic flow on Shanghai’s roads has increased so sharply that in peak times. the outlook for sustainable mobility in other urban cities in China may also improve.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study 4. 60 . In addition. is gradually going towards sustainable development under the guidance of the governmental policy of “transport first. the proportion of congested roads in the city center is more than 40% and the congested intersections are over 50%. The buses have been renewed. The car plate auction and higher parking costs have delayed fast motorization in Shanghai.

With the existing Post Department. the post and telecommunication sector in Chinese cities has also gone through four important reforms of its organization and management. The post business is undertaken by the new Post Bureau who kept its nature of public service operated by the government. it has entered directly into the age of wireless communication and high-speed internet access. a company which is run under market rules. in order to break the historical monopolizing position of “China Telecom” in the national market of fixed telephone and to promote benign competition in this field. we could assume that the influence of ICT on the organization of every day life in Chinese urban society might be generally comparable with that in Western cities. while the other keeps the name of “China Telecom” and is the only operator in the other provinces. Therefore. telephone and fax. The telecommunications sector was further restructured by two important reforms to constitute four national operators: • • • In July 1999.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study 5. information exchange in the city mainly relied on traditional modes: post. In the 1980s. “China Unicom” was founded for developing a national CDMA network as a competitor of “China Mobile”. telegraph.were created as a result of the first reform to the Post and Telecommunication Bureau (PTB) in Shanghai. it can substitute for or activate the “actual” movements of people and goods. the state government decided to divide “China Telecom” into two parts: “China Netcom” runs the fixed telephone business in 10 northern Provinces of China. Based on Shanghai. This structure was thereafter thoroughly transformed in 1998 by the second reform which separated completely the telecommunication activities from the post activities. two new departments – local telephone department and long-distance telecommunication department . A few years later. In some cases. During this rapid technological progress. the mobile communications business was separated from “China Telecom” to create “China Mobile”. the only GSM network operator in China. Within less than 20 years. Today. Information and telecommunications services Besides the movement of people and goods. information transfer is often referred to as “virtual” mobility. Before the 1990s. Since the development of the Pudong Special Economic Zone and the launch of large-scale infrastructure construction. the PTB constituted thus three independent departments. the transfer of information constitutes an important part of the urban mobility system. In May 2002. when Shanghai lagged far behind in urban infrastructure construction investment. 61 . information and communications technology (ICT) is completely merged into the daily life of the citizens. Shanghai began to equip itself with the most advanced information and communication technologies. Local telephone departments and long-distance telecommunication departments have left the former PTB to form “China Telecom”.

The four biggest international logistical companies - DHL, UPS, Fedex and TNT, have obtained the major share of the express delivery market in China. They mainly face business-type customers and present an obviously competitive advantage in the field of international transportation and express delivery. At the local scale, the express mailing service of the Shanghai Post Company faces a challenge from numerous medium and small private delivery companies. The investigation conducted by Shanghai Investigation Brigade of National Statistical Bureau from 2004 indicated that the number of private delivery enterprises in Shanghai was 467. They provide not only door-to-door-service to individual customers, but also undertake the delivery tasks of some Internet sellers. In 2006, the total business volume of express delivery realized by them was 164 million pieces (excluding the business volume in the branches in other provinces and municipalities), their daily average business volume is 450,000 pieces, accounting for nearly 90% of the total express business volume of Shanghai, and 7.8 times the express business volume operated by Shanghai Post Company in the same period.

Telecommunication: Installed telephone & mobile phone

In Shanghai, telecommunication technology has upgraded very fast. The statistical data on infrastructure (Table 5.2.1) cannot show the improvement in quality and efficiency of services, but they definitely demonstrate the popularity of telecommunication in the daily life of people (Table 5.2.2). For telephones, the total number of users increased nearly four times in the past decade, increasing from 3 million in 1996 to more than 11 million in 2006. The development of household telephones is the most remarkable: its popularity rate has developed from less than 50% to 147.7%, that is to say, a large number of families have installed more than one telephone line. The growth of mobile phone users is still swift. The number of mobile phones users increased almost forty times in the past ten years. The popularity of mobile phones reached a penetration rate of 88.7% in 2006. This growth does not show any sign of slowing down. In the last four years, the annual growth rate of mobile phone users has always been above 10%.

The total call time of long-distance telecommunications increased about two times, from 7.68 billion minutes in 2003 to 15.14 billion minutes in 2006. In terms of communication tools, the use of telephones maintained stable growth, while the use of mobile phones or IP phone increased remarkably. The communication frequency and time length of long-distance telecommunication by mobile phone rose by 56.2% and 73.2% respectively. The total call time of long-distance communication realized through IP cards provided by different operators increased 160% in the last four years (Table 5.2.3).

Investment in metro transport
Brief

In the period of the 10th Five Year Plan, the major metro projects invested around 10 billion Yuan. This includes No. 4 metro line (12.8 billion Yuan), No. 8 metro line (11.8 billion Yuan), No. 7 metro line (9.2 billion Yuan) and No. 9 metro line (10.9 billion Yuan). According to the Shanghai Metro Basic Network, from now to 2012, the Shanghai Shentong Group will invest more than 160 billion Yuan to build up 13 metro lines with a total length of up to 510 km. They will form the basic network of metro transport in Shanghai and will carry 40% of the daily passenger, becoming the backbone of the Shanghai public transport system.

7.2.2

Reform of investment and financing system of Shanghai metro transport

In the period of the 10th Five Year Plan, Shanghai will spend 45.43 billion Yuan to construct the metro, equivalent to 1.37% of GDP. It is impractical to follow the old path to only employ the Shanghai Metro Company to take all of the work. Accordingly, the Shanghai government decided to deepen the reform of investment and financing system in April 2000, carrying out the reform of 4 Separations, namely separating investment, construction, management and supervision of the metro. It enforces the government managing function on public investment, drives the constructing and managing of metro into regulated, orderly and sound market competition, and sets up an effective government supervision system at the same time. On 28 April 2000, companies such as Shentong Group, Shanghai Metro Line Construction Co. Ltd., and Shanghai Metro Incorporation, Shanghai Modern Rail Transit Co. Ltd. were set up respectively. Shanghai Metro Line Construction Co. Ltd was set up to construct the metro. Shanghai Metro Incorporation was the department of management in metro. Shanghai Modern Rail Transit Co. Ltd was supervising the metro. Shentong Group was set up to be the principal part of investment in rail transport, owing assets and management rights. The 4 Separations solved the financing problem. In 2000, it was difficult to attract money to boost metro transport construction. After the foundation of Shentong Group, by means of shareholder of land, loan and financing and bond releasing, it formed a multi-source financing system, and the metro transport also expanded from single line to a network. When the financing problem was solved, new problems appeared, such as poor safety and supervision of metro system, different ticket systems in No.1, No.2 and No.3 metro lines, and inconvenience of metro transfer, etc. Therefore, the Shanghai Metro Line Company merged into the Shentong Group in 2004, which means that the investment body and construction body merged into one company, 4 years after the implementation of 4 Separations.

7.2.3

Investment and financing for constructed metro in Shanghai

The main body for No.1 metro line includes Shanghai Jiushi Corporation and Shanghai Chengtou Corporation (called Chengtou Corporation for short in the following). The two companies took charge of financing for construction and reimbursement of the loan. No.1 metro line was transferred to Shanghai Shentong Group (called Shentong for short in the following) after construction. Then Shentong injected the assets of metro train and fare collection system of No.1 metro line into Shentong Metro which has been listed in stock market. The main body for No.2 metro line is Chengtou and districts Government Company along the line, who took charge of financing for construction and returning the loan. Chengtou put this investment into the stock of Shentong Group after the No.2 metro line was completed. The investment from the district along the line was purchased by Shentong Group. The main body for No.3 metro line is Shentong Group and districts along the line, which form the Shanghai Metro Transport Pearl Line Development Co., Ltd. Shentong Group controlled the project company. Afterwards, No.4 and No.5 metro lines follow the same mode of that of No.3 line.

Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study

The total investment for No.1 metro line is 5.744 billion Yuan (95%), while business loan is 0.3 billion Yuan (3%); total investment for No.2 metro line is 11.158 billion Yuan, among which the capital fund is 7.708 billion Yuan (69%), loan from foreign governments is 3.45 billion Yuan (31%) (Jiushi and Chengtou taking charge of borrowing and returning); total investment for No.5 metro line is 3.125 billion Yuan and is all a capital fund; the total investment for No.3 and No.4 metro lines is 22.56 billion Yuan, for which the capital fund is 7.1 billion Yuan (31%), the remainder is from project financing. Generally speaking, the first phase of metro transport construction mainly depended on investment from government. According to the regulation, the minimum fund prepared for new construction project will be 40% of the total investment. The proportion of the capital fund far exceeds the standard controlled by central government, so Shanghai’s government takes much pressure to raise capital fund in the past.

Conclusions
Comment from stakeholder dialogue: There is general consensus that mobility is in danger of significantly degrading in Shanghai due to the lack of integration as the urban area expands. It is not clear whether the situation is serious enough yet to drive an institutional response. Participants felt that more economic pain from a significant decline in competitiveness may be required.

The huge investments in transportation are only possible with the active role of the Shanghai government. Shanghai’s economy is growing fast, and investment in transportation construction has expanded continually. In the 10th Five Year Plan, Shanghai will invest 80.04 billion Yuan in transport facilities, an increase of 74% compared to that in the 9th Five Year Plan, on urban roads, highways, bridges, tunnels and the metro. It is because of the large scale investment lasting for quite a long time that the transportation systems in Shanghai have been upgraded tremendously. In the past, metro transport construction depended on investment from government, placing much pressure

on them to raise the capital funds. The involvement of developers and local government in metro and road construction has proven to be the only way to sustain huge investments in metro transport infrastructure.

However. the city of Shanghai had implemented preferential ticket prices for transfer on all the 396 bus lines within the inner ring and new encouragement policies will be promoted soon. bicycles are more common in Beijing.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study 8. bus stations within a 500-meter service radius will cover urban areas. due to the longer distance travel. improper station locations. Enormous investments on urban transport facilities are car-oriented rather than human-oriented. only when better public transport service is provided for the disadvantaged living in the suburban area. Comment from stakeholder Road construction in the city center areas cannot relieve the congestion as expected. 8. crowding on the bus. In order to change this situation. by 2010. With the high density of buildings and population in the city center. etc. dialogue: It would be better to act now rather than deal with various and increased negative impacts later. Government should take action now to control the environmental problem. posing potential conflicts. Recently the number of electric bikes is growing very fast. “Research On Non-motorized Vehicle Transport Planning in Central City of Shanghai” was conducted in June 2006. According to the plans. New regulation for speed control is needed to ensure the safety. with many problems like insufficient bus lines.6 Conclusions It can be concluded from the analysis above that motorization will bring more serious environmental problems. forcing bicycle riders to ride on sidewalks. can convenient mobility be ensured for the residents in more remote areas. people can enter metro network by one bus from suburban area.4 Reflections on the disadvantaged (1) Suburb resident travels The Public transport system in periphery areas is still far from developed. people are more easily exposed to the concentration of pollution. Comment from Stakeholder Dialogue: Electric mopeds are getting more numerous in Shanghai. the number of bicycle lanes has been reduced. after they have become a reality. (3) Non-motorized vehicle system There are about 10 million bicycles in Shanghai. The growing number of motor vehicles and increased traffic volumes have degraded the road service level in recent years.

to promote energy efficiency. In addition. In Shanghai. Therefore. Public transport is also quite favorable for energy savings.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study Also. passenger and freight transport will continue to increase. and to actively promote the development and use of alternative energy sources. rail transport needs more attention. And the city also needs to improve environmental protection and energy saving standards in vehicles. especially in rural and urban periphery areas where there are fewer jobs and services available and a direct subsidy is needed for them. motorization is becoming the major factor impacting energy consumption for the transport sector with increasing demand. adjusting the mode of transport to lower the energy consumption rate and promoting renewable alternative energy will become the main ways to reduce GHG emissions. the city needs to further enhance rail and water transport and to expand their transport capacity. The bicycle is the most efficient mode of transport for short distance travel and energy savings. The proportion of energy end-use consumption in the transport sector rose dramatically against total energy consumption. The big increase in transport expenditure may be affordable for the rich people but will limit opportunities for the poor. 113 . We must keep the bicycle system and the matching built environment. For a long time in the future.

roads severely congested. Public transport construction will be the key concern and investment will be prioritized to further metro construction during the Eleventh Five-year Plan. Shanghai will also gradually introduce an exclusive bus lane system. As a result a comprehensive transport plan should be prepared to integrate the various transport modes over the whole GYDR. there will be 300 km of exclusive bus lanes. The containers would then go by rail to and from the port of Shanghai. Regarding freight transport system. combined with the rational allocation of resources. railway hubs. However the limited land and geographical setting of Shanghai. the government will further strengthen the construction of high capacity roads and construct arterial freight transport networks connecting ports. and the density of suburban road network has remained low. 9.1 Policy and special issues Analysis of Shanghai’s transport policy Continue to strengthen key transport infrastructure construction In recent years. the metro system and freight rail to link to the container ports. By 2010. Comment from stakeholder But the main efforts will be put on mass capacity transport modes.1 9. the highway is usually considered the simplest solution. Apart from road projects. railways and other transport modes.1. and logistics parks and advanced manufacturing estate. The key point is the efficient use of resources. the intercity express railway system will be gradually constructed so as to alleviate traffic tension on the Shanghai-Nanjing and ShanghaiHangzhou corridors and to further consolidate the dominant role of railways in intercity passenger transport. together with 400 km of metro. Shanghai will continue to strengthen the construction of key transport infrastructure. such as the intercity express rail. Comment from stakeholder Due to the difficulty of province-wide coordination between different government transport authorities. such as Pudong railway. dialogue: A new logistics center for containers outside Shanghai has been proposed. urban transportation facilities have become highly saturated. airports. In terms of intercity passenger transport. is making it very difficult for Shanghai to provide enough traffic lanes to match the demand from the surrounding provinces for freight and passenger transport. are also under construction. transport demands in Shanghai have rapidly increased.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study 9. exclusive railway freight transportation lines. constituting the backbone network of the urban public transport system. 114 .44 dialogue: We need to make overall plans and take all factors into the consideration for waterways.

but also by its impact on economic vitality and social justice. and personal preferences with the growth in income. guaranteeing the land reserved for public transport interchange facilities and enhancing the capacity of transfer facilities to encourage new development along public transport corridors. But success will not just be measured by its scale.2 Coordinating urban land use and transport Coordination of land use and transport will be key to sustainable development. Regulation should be strengthened to encourage land development at a relatively high density as well as mixed-use development. It has been proven that land-use density and mixture are Comment from stakeholder dialogue: The example of Singapore was raised where high-density living is encouraged and car ownership discouraged. The urban planning control system. during the process of Shanghai metropolitan spatial restructure. In accordance with the principle of “dual increases and dual decreases” (increasing in green space and public space. lack of reliability (bus). can we still keep the higher urban activity density in the city center where people will still prefer to Comment from stakeholder dialogue: There is an incentive to sell as much land as possible to generate fiscal revenue.

Suburb development should be focused on the strategy of urban development guided by public transport. 115 . Shanghai will strengthen planning control and implement a transport impact analysis system.1. lack of service frequency (even for the metro). The metro construction plan is very ambitious. decreasing in building density and height in the city center). Although the basic public transport service can be provided to the newly developed areas at the urban edge. Hong Kong was raised as a city where the new towns are quite well integrated into the overall development plans very important factors that impact on people’s travel mode choice. Will there be a huge government deficit? And will it be affordable within the limited family budget available? 9. smarter mobility management schemes should be fully explored to shift the mode choice from cars.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study The construction of the metro is key to establishing a sustainable transport system in Shanghai. However there is the scattered industrial land development in suburban Shanghai. and industrial buildings tend to be single story in suburbs in China. the government will strictly control the building floor space ratio and functional layout of buildings while using the capacity of the available transport facilities as part of the conditions for land development. the city center is heavily polluted along major traffic routes. With the high building density and heavy traffic.

stay for living, working or recreation? Controls on vehicle emissions and guarantees for the quality of city center should be very important. Comment from stakeholder dialogue: Land-use planning is seen as key to solving the mobility issues in Shanghai. Many of the issues related to land-use and transport integration in Shanghai are similar to the rest of China. There is a feeling that if this can be solved in Shanghai, China too may improve sustainable mobility in other urban cities.

9.1.3

Control of motorized vehicles

Controlling motorized vehicles has been a successful practice in Shanghai from the 1990s to keep the dynamic balance between road supply and increasing vehicle demand. It is a very unique public policy under the great pressure from the car industry lobby. With the accelerated construction of the urban road network, the government will still implement quota auctions on motorized vehicle licenses to control the amount of motorized-vehicles, thereby trying to keep the operations of road network at a reasonable service level. The government adjusts monthly licenses according to urban transport status and purchase prices of licenses. The license auction system also has its negative influences. Although the city implements policies such as travel limits on non-local licensed vehicles during rush hour on elevated expressways, the number of non-local licenses purchased by local residents has been growing by year, leading to an outflow of a large quantity of road construction and maintenance fees to other places. The city will consider other measures such as road congestion charging, fuel tax and parking limits as the main policy instruments in the future. Comment from stakeholder dialogue: Chinese people now tend to buy big cars instead of small cars, the media and policy should encourage the small car. Government vehicles should also be limited. Comment from stakeholder dialogue: Governments play an even more important role in developing countries as consumers have not yet reached the same environmental awareness and mainly want individual means of transportation.

With the increasing motorization in Shanghai (as the car license will be valid for a long time) the policy only delays over fast motorization, but what will happen in next ten or twenty years? A new taxation system should also be introduced to encourage people to buy a smaller car instead of a big car.

Building a multi-mode urban transport system based on public transport priorities

The municipal government has tried to promote transportation hub construction to consolidate public transport routes and network through these hubs, to improve transfer conditions and to expand service coverage area by the public transport system. By constructing transfer hubs, the city can more effectively link all transport modes, fully leveraging the advantages of various transport modes and building up a multi-modal urban transport system. The construction of the multi-modal transport system will face the challenge of institutional fragmentation, and the ability to coordinate the various stakeholders within Shanghai, the Yangtze River Delta region and central government will be critical to success. Comment from stakeholder dialogue: Each stakeholder has a critical role to play to improve mobility: • • • Governments should set a framework, provide education and investment for infrastructure Private companies can provide various mobility related technologies Research institutions and universities can collect and analyze data, put trends in perspective on urban planning, infrastructure and safety related issues, and develop research projects • • Media has also a critical role to provide a positive image of public transportation (e.g. in Bogota where they advocated in favor of the bus rapid transport system) Cooperation between these various organizations is needed.

9.1.5

Protect activity space for slow transport

The government has tried to progressively guide long-distance bicycle rides to transform into public transport, improve traffic conditions and prioritize the bicycle functions for shorter trips and for connecting to public transport. It should further separate motorized and non-motorized traffic, create conditions for reconstruction and construction of bicycle lanes parallel to motor vehicle lanes and gradually form regional bicycle lane networks. It is also necessary to promote public parking facilities for bicycles in downtown areas and in public transport hubs. The government should strengthen regulations for mopeds and encourage moped/electric bicycle riders to take public transport. Highly polluting mopeds have been replaced. By the end of 2005, the city has eliminated the use of fuel moped for environmental concern. The bicycle is still the most sustainable mode of urban transport. Many services and job opportunities are still available for residents within bicycle (e-bike) range. The policy trying to transfer the long distance bicycle passenger to bus will be very difficult to realize. The slow speed of the buses and the coverage of metro lines cannot compete with the bicycle for short distance travel. In the last ten years with the 13% drop in bicycle share, congestion has not been improved. If we totally transfer the traditional built environment into wide streets and big blocks, can public transport provide the same mobility as the bicycle without an extra financial

117

Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study

burden to government? Or should we force people to use the car even for short distance travel? The characteristics of the walking and bicycle oriented built environment is very important now for more sustainable mobility. Can the bike keep its mode share is the challenge.

9.1.6

Traffic management

The operation of “unblocking the road” has greatly improved the traffic management ability of local government and the physical quality of traffic infrastructure, such as the CCTV system with many monition camera and traffic counting loops has been widely installed, the road intersection has Comment from stakeholder dialogue: ITS should be encouraged in improving urban mobility for car traffic and also for public transport, such as in Europe and South Korea.

been widened in order to speed up the traffic. However, the operation could not be considered a successful on the whole. The traffic management measure, the software, had not been fully explored as suggested in the dialogue, such as the flexible working hours schedule, updating the traffic signal, etc. The achievement of information technology can also greatly improve the efficiency of the existing transport infrastructure and make the transport more accessible and more transparence for passenger and freight movement.

To accommodate the extra demands, several projects are under construction or in planning, such as the Hongqiao airport transport hub, intercity rail system etc. The Hongqiao transport hub station is scheduled to be put into use in 2009, occupying an area of 13.22 km2. After its implementation, it will integrate modernized transport facilities including Beijing-Shanghai Fast Train, Shanghai-Hangzhou Maglev Line, Pudong Maglev Line and five metro lines. It will become the important channel for Shanghai to reach the whole country and play an important role for development of the tertiary industry in Shanghai.45

The Shanghai-Hangzhou Maglev Line is under planning and will extend for about 175 kilometers. The total project budget is about 35 billion Yuan. The Zhejiang section will extend for about 105 kilometers, all elevated, to Hangzhou East Station via Jiaxing Station. The Shanghai-Hangzhou Maglev Line is defined as urban-suburban line, with its normal speed reaching 450 km/h although it will run less than 200 km/h in the central city.46 According to the original schedule, this project should be finished in 2008 and put into operation in 2010 before Shanghai Expo. However, due to the lack of an environmental assessment, progress on this project has been delayed.

Nanjing and Hangzhou By 2020.3 Transports during Shanghai Expo 2010 During 184 days of Shanghai Expo in 2010. Intercity rail transport in the Yangtze River Delta region will be operated like a city bus in frequency and ticketing.

The Shanghai-Hangzhou intercity express train will travel for 45 minutes while the trains stopping at every station will travel for less than 60 minutes. A “Plan for Intercity Rail Network in Round Bohai Area of Beijing. A survey shows that the visitor distribution by day will be extremely uneven. (2) Bus lane for city bus and Expo bus Shanghai will try to build a 300-kilometer exclusive bus lane (110 kilometers in central area) by 2010.000. The driving speed could reach above 15 km/hour in rush hours.3 Intercity railway planning in Yangtze River Delta region In 2004. and reach 5. As a result the transport should be carefully planed and managed.

This strategy will also be consistent with the Shanghai metropolitan spatial strategy to encourage the development in suburban town. Shanghai will grasp this opportunity to construct a multi-modal transport system. There are not enough hotel beds for all of the visitors.6. There will be several transfer gates for people to park their car far away from the expo site and take public transport to the site. We should think of building accommodation facilities in the peripheral new towns and also providing good public transport linkage from the new towns to the expo site. The transport plan of Shanghai Expo 2010 is not only aimed at the success of the half year event. Several water gates will be constructed.1: Mass transit network plan in Yangtze River Delta area Source: On Mid-Hub-City and Subsidiary-Hub-Cities of N-H Line 120 . including entirely upgrading the transport system and smoothly integrating urban and rural areas.

control automobile development. the policy to focus on freeway construction and to comparatively overlook the construction of national and provincial roads had led to problems in that the transportation capacity of national roads is saturated while the freeway flow is too low in some sections. This needs coordination.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study 9. urban transport policies should be weighted towards aggregate efficiency and capacity as well as environmental influences. So there are still challenges in achieving operational efficiency and sustainability of the transport system. The World Expo in 2010 provides an opportunity to upgrade and integrate the Shanghai urban transport system within the Yangtze River Delta Region. the practice to put public transport as a priority. 121 . For future development. protect slow transport and build a multi-modal transport system will certainly benefit sustainable development of the urban transport system. The planning authority needs to exercise control over a larger area than the current administrative boundaries.4 Conclusions Comment from stakeholder dialogue: Shanghai may be heading for a crisis. “The planning authority needs to be sized appropriately to the mobility issues they are trying to solve” Among Shanghai’s transport policies.

The last presentation was by Professor Pan Haixiao who summarized the findings of the Shanghai case study on sustainable mobility. People’s Republic of China.Notes from the stakeholder dialogue The morning session began with a welcome address from Mr. He presented the 7 goals for sustainable mobility and gave a frank assessment of the current outlook for sustainable mobility globally. the Director of Sustainable Development at Michelin.

Regarding Shanghai he noted that “I am unaware of any place in human history that has built so much road infrastructure in such a short period of time”. Transport Research Institute. Edward Leman.

David Peng.Appendices Session 2: Status of sustainable mobility in China The second plenary session was chaired by Mr. and Mr. Ms Wang started the session with the reasoning behind GM’s engagement on sustainable mobility in China. Edward Leman examined why mobility matters by sharing a perspective on the history and future direction of integrated land and transport planning in metropolitan Shanghai. • • • • • Initiatives such as flexible working hours can reduce peak flows Pedestrian movement should be prioritized first in city plans Safety equipment needs to be improved within mobility infrastructure Focus should also be placed on large transportation hubs and the public should be involved in consultation process related to mobility planning. The key points made for each discussion topic are listed below in the order in which they were shared. See separate presentations for more details. the planning authority needs to exercise control over a larger area than the current administrative boundaries “the planning authority needs to be sized appropriately to the mobility issue they are trying to solve” • Example given of railways which are controlled nationally with little or no control from Shanghai although exception now likely to be made with the first regional railway likely to be built in the YRD. Senior Deputy President for AIG China. Director. The last presentation by Mr. President. goods and services in a sustainable way. This was followed by Professor Lu Huapu who summarized the work that Tsinghua University is doing with BP on sustainable urban mobility in China. Topic 3: How important is it to pursue an integrated approach to achieving sustainable mobility in China? • • Integration between transport and urban planning is essential Chinese cities are investing heavily in infrastructure but this is not keeping up with demand no matter how many roads are built. As a consequence there needs to be constraints on the number of motorized road vehicles in cities.

Recommendation made to engage industrial associations in the process to avoid conflict of interests at individual company level • • • • Auto industry has seen rapid growth in China and expectation that a prosperous auto-industry would contribute to the long term economic development of China Recognition that limiting private vehicles is a controversial issue in China Recommendation made to improve the professionalism of logistics operations One of key issues is the allocation of investment levels on private and public modes. Divergent and conflicting institutional priorities also raised. The railways are actually unique as there is only one body. Example given of some cities that promote the use of larger vehicles over smaller vehicles to optimize use of available road space without taking into account the environmental considerations. regional and national level. Example given of Shanghai where government removed the monthly ticket system and people moved away from public transport to private modes (Bike). Belief that many more people would use public transport if service was better. Considerations should be given to how smaller companies can comply with the stricter regulations.Appendices distance rail transport. Example given of Sweden with a vision of “no road accidents” Question raised as to whether companies would consider changing the incentive system on company cars and encourage management to use public transport. Suggestion made for government to set visionary targets. • Policy implementation is the role of government but it needs to take into account the views of key stakeholders. • • • Within Shanghai the metro dominates. • • Road management and administration also identified as areas that could be improved. Topic 1: Are the economic and environmental impacts of road transportation threatening to get in the way of economic growth? • • Recognition that mobility is critical for economic growth but also has adverse and negative implications. • Issue of institutional silos was raised where decisions are not coordinated across institutions. • Point also made that government expected more people to move from bicycle to public transport when more have gone from bicycles to private vehicles as they view this as giving more personal freedom (as the bike did albeit for shorter distances). transport and urban planning. while the railways are not important Approval process for new rail investments seen as bureaucratic and full of problems There are also limited statistics on the railways although this comment was disputed by some participants. • • • • Question was raised on examples of cities that have been successful in delivering a sustainable mobility system France was given as an example of a country where there was now under one Minister responsible for sustainable development. They exist for Shanghai and Beijing but not for China. China needs to develop emissions standards. Also noted that co-ordination is easier said than done due to the high number of institutions and agencies at a municipal. China needs to develop smaller and less energy intensive vehicles. 141 .

Despite the stark differences they also share the following characteristics: • • • • • In all cases mobility is critical to development All are congested albeit the absolute levels of mobility services are very different All need to significantly improve the integration within city planning Governance is a critical issue – it is not just about technology Clear that the cities could learn from one another. Eads who had been involved in all of the previous dialogues involving the WBCSD on sustainable mobility noted some of the difference and similarities between Dar es Salaam. Professor Pan noted the following: • • In China transportation is always linked to roads – it should be broadened to multiple modes In the YRD the economic linkages go well beyond the administrative boundaries. Bangalore and Shanghai. Dar es Salaam is very poor and struggling with many aspects. Trucks may not always be the best solution. There is likely to be much to learn from Shanghai for other cities in China and elsewhere 142 . Dr. Recommend one administrative authority for transportation and urban planning in the region • • • • Recognition that planning alone is not enough and mobility controls have also to be put in place in the urban areas The walking and bicycling environment needs to be secured and prioritized Land use needs greater control in the suburban areas and transportation should be integrated into the suburban planning Freight transport needs further consideration from both an energy efficiency and environmental standpoint. Shanghai has grown so much and so fast and we are fortunate that this growth has undergone a lot of analysis and research. Bangalore is thriving and growing rapidly but investing significantly less per capita in infrastructure than Shanghai.Appendices Summary of the day Dr. Eads and Professor Pan summarized the main discussion points from the dialogue.
